Monteiro scores six in win over Washington

Olivier Monteiro scored a career-high six goals and finished with seven points in Stevenson’s first win over Washington College since 1999.

Senior attackman Olivia Monteiro scored a career-high six goals and had seven points to lead the Stevenson Mustangs women’s lacrosse team to a 17-10 victory over Washington (MD.) on Wednesday night at Mustangs Stadium.

Monteiro sparked a key late run by the Mustangs that put things away in the second half.

Washington’s Katherine Vincent scored the first two goals of the game on free position shots, but the Mustangs ripped off seven straight goals over the next 13 minutes to push ahead 7-2. However, the Shorewomen were able to get back within two goals of the Mustangs with 15 minutes left in the second half, before Stevenson scored five in a row to end the game.

Kiely Bunce got the Mustangs on the board five minutes into the game with a free position shot just 15 seconds after Vincent’s second goal. Then Monteiro scored three of her goals in just a three-minute span with a score by Mackenzie Reese tucked in between them. Carly Bowes and Brady Heher then scored two more goals in the run for Stevenson to make it a 7-2 game with 12:42 remaining in the first half.

Washington scored back-to-back goals to trim the league a big but Mallory Davila and Monteiro both responded to those scored to push Stevenson back ahead by five goals. However, Washington scored two more before the end of the first half to get back within three at the break.

Washington also scored four of the first seven goals in the second half as they trimmed the Stevenson lead to two goals with 15:08 remaining. Stevenson just wouldn’t let the Shorewomen any momentum down the stretch. The Mustangs defense shut Washington out for the final 15 minutes of the game and scored five goals in a row over a five and a half minute span to push ahead by seven goals.

The overall game numbers were relatively close with Stevenson only barely outshooting Washington 30-28, out scooping them on ground balls 16-14 and actually trailing on draw controls 15-14. The Shorewomen did, however, struggle with turnovers and eight of their 17 were caused directly by the Mustangs. Stevenson goalie Mack Ferguson finished the game with eight saves.

Stevenson earned their first win over Washington in nine tries, dating back to 1999.

Stevenson will travel for their next game as they take on Vassar College on Sunday in Fort Myers, Florida. They’ll then play Skidmore in Florida on Thursday. The Mustangs will return home on March 25 to host Messiah.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
